The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

The performances at the Theatre Royal have during the past few weeks been of a varied character. After the termination of the engagement of Miss Ada Ward, who has since been playing a highly successful engagement at Sydney, the ' Great Divorce Case ' was produced. This was followed, on May 12, by an Irish drama named 'Eileen Oge,' of which 'Tahite,'in The Australasian, thus dis coursed : — 'The piece, for the most part, has been well put upon the stage. The opening scene has an agreeably-painted distance, if the foreground is of the customarily crude pattern. The hay field scene is very real, and if the hay makers would make hay as if they were working in earnest, and not playing, the effect would be by so much the better. In the old-mill interior the parts appear to be wanting in harmony, but the light is excellently managed. The trans parency scene, showing a castaway and a movable ship, has nothing unusual to recommend it. Moreover, the room in which it is shown is as dismal an i...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

^^si'!i^^\ SPORT INC ^^il^^S The very wet weather by which we have been visited has somewhat interfered with several sporting events.

THE VOTER THAT ALWAYS COMES TOO LATE.—5. PLUMPER: "OH, COME NOW, THESE PARTITIONS ARE ALTOGETHER TOO NARROW!" [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

HUMOURS OF THE ELECTIONS : ? 1. 'jIE WANTEE VOTEE.' ? 2. CANDIDATE RETURNING THANKS FOR THE ' HIGH HONOUR,' &C. ? 3. COUNTRY VOTERS RETURNING FROM THE POLL. — 4. THE VOTER THAT ALWAYS COMES TOO LATE. — 5. PLUMPER: 'OH, COME NOW, THESE. PARTI TIONS ARE ALTOGETHER TOO NARROW!' In these cuts our artist has given some characteristic views of some of the many odd incidents presented by polling day. In No. 1 we see an attempt made to turn our Mongolian fellow- residents to account as voters. This endeavour was made in one or two districts, where the Celestials were properly indoctrinated and taken to the poll, but there met by an absolute refusal by the stern returning officer, they not having qualified themselves by naturalisation. No. 2 shows ub candidates returning thanks on the announcement of the poll, and in illustration of this we may quote the following, from a paper supplied to The Argus by 'A Vagabond,' in reference to polling day: — 'When Mr. Sturt, P.M., the returning ...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1877. QUEENSLAND AND ITS CHINESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1877. QUEENSLAND AND ITS CHINESE. Queensland has a serious difficulty over its Chinese. Individually and personally it does not appear that the colony objects to the Chinaman. But it complains that it has too many of him. It has, indeed, some minor objections to urge against him. He has a way of coming to the colony, hurrying to the gold-fields, occupying ground which often a European miner would like to work, dealing for goods   only with his own countrymen, and, without making more than the most infinitesimal contributions to the revenue of the colony, returning to China, taking with him the net result of his earnings. But whatever there is to say against the individual Chinaman becomes far more momentous when it is said of tens of thousands of him. Even if our yellow brother were the pattern of all the social and moral virtues, it would become a serious matter to find him coming in such hordes as threaten to reduce the colony to a Mongolian province...

ATROCIOUS MURDER IN NORTH QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

ATROCIOUS MURDER IN NORTH QUEENSLAND A murder of diabolical atrocity was committed recently at Doughboy Creek, near Cooktown, Queensland. The local paper states that at the inquest Sergeant Donaldson deposed to having   received information from J. M'Loughlin, on the morning of the 30th April, that Towey, a storekeeper, was murdered at Doughboy Creek on the previous night. On proceeding to the spot he found that the store was all ransacked, the goods scattered all over the floor and counter, and in great disorder. He saw a pool of blood at the door, and the door (calico) burst, and covered with blood. He saw a trail leading from the door towards the creek, as if something had been dragged along the ground, which he followed   for about 60 yards. On the bank of the creek he found the body of a man, quite dead, which he recognised as being Thomas   Green, Towey's storekeeper. The body was covered with blood   and lying on its face. O...

OUTRAGE BY POLYNESIANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

OUTRAGE BY POLYNESIANS., The Maryborough Chronicle, a paper published in Northern Queensland, had in its issue of May 1 the following narrative : - The town of Maryborough was thrown into a state of intense incitement on Sunday morning, April 29, by the report that a house had been attacked by Polynesians, and the inmates mur dered. On proceeding to the scene of the outrage, we found that, as usual on such occasions, the story had been greatly exaggerated, and the horrible supposed climax bad been prevented by the arrival of timely assistance. Mr. P. Nolan owns a selection near the Maryborough Sugar Company's road, on which he resides with his wife aud six children. His work necessitates his absence from home from Sunday afternoon until Saturday evening. During the remainder of the week his family are left comparatively unprotected, their nearest neighbour living a mile distant from his house.
